A boring record of whatever that comes in my mind

Second Game project- a non RPG


I think you might have noticed that I’m not blogging too frequently. Blame that to my new work atmosphere at Bangalore! There are so many interesting stuff and I am spoilt for choice as to what to do and which one should come first. While I am still struggling to put Arevan on BigFish Games (their QA is quite strict and takes time), I have started working on the GDD of my first 3D game. The game draws it’s inspiration from Tradewinds Legends, though the underlying principle is different. I shall post screenshots when I have something ready. I am going to take care of the 2D graphics, game design and marketing while the 3D art, sounds and development is going to be conducted by our partner Phantasm Games Studio. This going to be my first 3D game as well as a non-RPG. Which is why the game’s IP will be that of Phantasm Games as we publish only RPG games at Over Cloud 9. The game will be featured at our site because it has some partial RPG elements like quest system, battles, etc, but primarily will belong to my partner’s website. The project is coming along quite fast, and the artwork and development is already in the process. The GDD is almost complete, I am working on the the dialogues currently. I will try input some outrageous humor like you might in Pascal in Arevan :P . Apart from these, I have too many other plans on my mind. Like working on my 1st 3D RPG game which is coming next to this project, starting a marketing service for indie developers, researching on indie problems and coming up with solutions to those, etc, etc. The latter is going to be continued to my 2nd part of the ‘Life of an Indie series’.

This is all for this time, I might have a couple of random funny updates following this one. So keep checking back. :D

    Oh, finally an update. Nice to hear that you are trying something new. Surprising that you are using a 3d engine, do you have experience in 3d arts? But i’m glad to see that you don’t use RPG-Maker any more as got slowly tired of it.

    Sounds awesome! It’s great that you’re not blogging BECAUSE you’re incredibly busy with your game - that’s a good excuse :) Hang in there with Arevan and BFG - you’ll get there eventually, and hopefully it’ll be well worth it!

    @Greath- I didn’t leave out RPGmaker completely because it is easy to use. So in between I might make some games for a change :P . But yeah, considering it’s limitations the current engine is better. The best part is that I have left the development to my partner and it is their custom engine. So support and bug fixing will be a smooth process :D
    @Shaz- I don’t know why BFG is taking so much time after me hanging there for around 3-4 months :( . The QA has managed to pass after much trouble, just waiting for some news. I am so tired of it…
